Crock Pot Asian-Style Ribs
Pork is good for you!
The Crepes of Wrath
I am always looking for a really good rib recipe. I also like to use my crock pot. I actually made this the day before, brought them to room temperature and then finished under the broiler. Enjoy!!
4 lbs. Circle B Ranch pork ribs or Country Style Ribs
½ cup soy sauce
½ cup ponzu sauce (if you do not have ponzu sauce, use an additional ½ cup soy sauce + the juice of ½ an orange)
½ cup packed light brown sugar
2 Tbsp. rice vinegar
6 cloves of garlic, finely grated or minced
1 2-inch piece fresh ginger, finely grated or minced
1 tsp. Sriracha or hot chili oil
½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
2 Tbsp. water
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
Scallions, thinly sliced, for garnish
Sesame seeds, for garnish
Grease the inside of your crock pot with a non-stick spray or oil. Add in the ribs. Whisk together the soy sauce, ponzu sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, garlic, ginger, Sriracha, and chili flakes; then pour over the ribs. Cook on high 4-5 hours, or on low for 7-8 hours.
When ready to eat, remove the ribs from the pot (they will be fall-apart tender) and place them on a baking sheet. Preheat your oven to broil.
Pour the sauce into a pot. Whisk together the cornstarch and water, and pour it into the sauce. Whisk the sauce over medium-high heat until bubbling, and then baste the ribs in the sauce. Broil the ribs for 2 minutes or so, until bubbling and slightly caramelized. Serve garnished with sliced scallions and sesame seeds. You may want to serve this alongside rice or your favorite vegetable.
